I had a dashcam installed today and the cable has been hidden within the plastic trim behind the rear view mirror like yours in picture one. How did you feed your cable into it? Was the trim easy to remove and was there any intrusion into the built in camera system as I have a slight concern about that?arek said:Using Xiaomi DVR camera, bought in China (cheap). It's good quality and has wifi capability which makes downloading clips to smartphone a very easy task.
1 - cable in the slot between roof and roof interrior, there is small slot there
2 - under the pillar cover, near slot where upper and down part of pillar cover touch each other. Easy place to open lower part of pillar "cover"
3 - partially under pillar cover but mostly under rubber seal (xiaomi dvr has thin cable)
4 - under plastic cover, easy to open it there
5 - cable pushed into slot there (without opening or disassembling anything)
6 - left part of that plastic part is keept using some kind of clips which open quite easily, so opened there and pushed cable behind plastic cover
7 - pushed into slot there without disassembling anything
and finally into power socket. The end result is that cable is visible only near camera itself and near power socket. The rest
is hidden and not visible even if you look closely.
(note that there is cable visible on some of these photos; that was BEFORE final cable placement, so look at red lines only)
And now I'm using camera mounted upside down, like this - takes less space:
This looks good...looks like it will fit just above the rear view mirror. I have the sri with the front mounted camera so you are limited as to where you can mount the camera discreetly..maybe this is the solution I have been looking for.NeilC said:Hi all.
Still awaiting delivery of my new motor so not sure how this one would fit,
Looked pretty small & can be fitted upside down and picture rotation.
Your comment s welcome.

Where do you suggest I´ll run the wires connecting the front and back camera?Andrew72 said:Also Camera I have in the back of my car.
I have my camera set to record front and back of my car at the same time.
